Our son is in PS183, and we have been quite happy with it. The teachers are good, they manage to both keep the children entertained and motivated to learn. Our son has some attention issues, and needs dirrection to stay on task. The teacher has been quite successful in this regard.
One fantastic experience! Perhaps one of the very few public schools with music and arts programs, computer and science labs and a gym currently being built! The PTA is incredibly strong and funds were raised to add teachers aids, musical instruments, sports equipment etc. Their afterschool programs are varied and keep our kids active and intelectually stimulated. The Principal is an incredible leader who created a wonderful environment for the winning staff! A true gem!
PS 183 is a culturally diverse school. It is one of the few schools in NYC that can really celebrate having a host of families from all parts of the world. This impacts the children in such a positive way and is celebrated. Josh Klaris is a new principal to the school, but for the most part has been receptive to families/parents, especially new families. Jean, the parent coordinator, is a wonderful asset to the school and only improves inclusiveness among parents. Fundraising is big at PS 183. It is for good causes, but it can sometimes alienate those whose income does not allow for such continuous fundraising and direct donations. The curriculum is very progressive and very project oriented. I do wish for a more balanced curriculm that allowed for those students that would learn best from some traditional methodologies (i.e, phonics, algorithm). No school is perfect, but this one comes very close!
